LTC (Lead the Cause) JOZI 2016

FB_IMG_1462135722083Report on LTC Jozi 16

Lead the cause Jozi 2016

This was a 4 day equipping event at Rosebank Union Church

Teens were equipped to a deeper commitment in their faith. Youth ministries were also challenged in terms of applying the 7 values of a gospel advancing ministry. At LTC they were given various tools such as how to prayer and share the Gospel in a conversational way with there friends and from other religions. This was the first international launch outside of the USA. Go Live Dare has really taken hold of the global vision and seeking to train this awsome applicable life transforming gospel centred material throughout Southern Africa and beyond. All the training and flying over to the USA and implementation of this momentous event was well worth it. To hear young people’s enthusiasm as well as passion for there lost friends excites those around them. The passion was infectious and we are hoping to see much fruit as we partner and journey with many of these ministries.

This really took months of planning and I do want to thank Greg Stier and Debbie Bressina as well as Jason Loewen and the entire team at Dare2Share for your help on many levels. I also want to thank Steve and Rachel for all there hard work. I know it took a ton of planning but we’ll worth the effort. 

Thank you to Adam Cruickshank from the Sweet waters full gospel church in Amazimtoti for helping with the speaking schedule. Adam brought a wealth of his experience and implementation of the material to share practical insights with the youth pastors at the event. Thank you Anthony as well as Callie for helping in the core breakout sessions. 

Thank you to Ebenhaezer who was our MC for this event. You were super funny and an asset to our team. IMG-20160429-WA0051Also a thanks to Lwandiso our videographer who is in the process of melding all the clips together. 

I also want to thank my wonderful wife for all your help and time invested in this event and all the hours spent planning while in Colorado and at home.  

Thank you for all the prayers and I was really encouraged to see young people given the tools to effectively Gospelize their friends and family. 

There were so many testimonials of the young people and and in a sense they were thankful for being taught how to share the Gospel as well as learning to pray and being a more strategic youth ministry. Thanks to all the pastors and leaders who did attend this event. We had over 150 students attend this event with over 15 churches represented. This is only the beginning as we seek to Gospelize the nation. We will be journeying with these various ministries as they seek to adapt and implement what they have learned.

I will attach pictures below. I do encourage you to follow us on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM and TWITTER. We post many of our ministry activities to these posts.
